Johnny Gaudreau said it would be "sweet" to play for the Philadelphia Flyers someday.
Gaudreau grew up a Flyers fan. "I’ve got a ton of family here, all my friends — I actually have a wedding this week here in South Jersey," Gaudreau said. "All my friends come back here, all my good friends, and kids that I’ve played with my whole life are from South Jersey. So, it would be sweet to play here some day. You know you never know in sports, but it’s a lot of support back here in South Jersey and the Philly area." We'll see what the future holds for Gaudreau, but he's made a long-term commitment to the Calgary Flames, so he won't be changing teams anytime soon. This will be the second season of his six-year, $40.5 million contract. Jul 21 - 3:30 PM

Johnny Gaudreau won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy.

The Lady Byng highlights the league's most sportsmanlike player, which usually translates to a highly skilled player that gets very few penalty minutes. In 2016-17 Gaudreau scored 18 goals and 61 points in 72 games while accumulating just four PIM. This is the first time he's won the Lady Byng Trophy, but it's the second time in three years that it's gone to a member of the Calgary Flames as Jiri Hudler won it in 2015.

Johnny Gaudreau, who is nominated for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, picked up just four penalty minutes in 2016-17.

Gaudreau was whistled for high-sticking even though it was actually Sean Monahan who should've received the penalty and for embellishment. "I just try to stay out of the box as much as possible so I can be on the ice and help my team on the ice," Gaudreau said. "I think that's something that would frustrate me in the game if I was taking unnecessary penalties and sitting in the box when I should be on the ice. I look at it that way." He has spent just 38 minutes in the sin bin in 232 career NHL contests.

Johnny Gaudreau hopes to avoid playing in the World Hockey Championship again next year because he wants to be playing late in the spring in the NHL playoffs.

"I thought we deserved to play a little bit longer as a team in Calgary, but it was a great opportunity to go over there, represent USA, and I thought I did a good job," Gaudreau said. "Playing in late May and early June, if you want to win a Stanley Cup, you know you have to be prepared to play in those later months. I think by going over there and still playing, it's just going to make you better in the long run. That was something that Brad (Flames general manager Brad Treliving) and I talked about a little bit — we want to get used to playing in these later months." He recorded six goals and 11 points in eight games for the United States at the tournament, but he had just two assists in four playoff matches for the Flames. Anaheim swept Calgary in four games and the result did not sit well with Gaudreau, but he feels the team will learn from that.

Johnny Gaudreau was named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on Sunday.

The trophy "is an annual award given to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability." It is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The last member of the Flames to win it was Jiri Hudler in 2014. Bob MacMillan was the first Flame to take home the honors in 1979, when the team was still in Atlanta. Hall of Famer and Flames' Cup champion Joe Mullen won the other two times for the franchise, in 1987 and 1989.

Johnny Gaudreau has decided to play for Team USA in the 2017 World Championships.

Gaudreau is extending his 2016-17 campaign after the Flames were swept by Anaheim in the first round of the playoffs. He had two assists and a minus-three rating in that series.
Apr 21 - 3:32 PM

Johnny Gaudreau is hoping to be calmer going into his second trip to the playoffs.

Gaudreau got his first taste of playoff action in 2015 and while he did well with four goals and nine points in 11 games, it was a mental challenge for him. "That first series, the first round, I was nervous every single game," said Gaudreau. "Now this is the time to learn from that experience … we have a little more experience throughout our whole team now, I think." He'll get his first chance to see what his added experience will contribute when the Flames play Anaheim on Thursday.

Johnny Gaudreau recorded his 200th and 201st points in Calgary's 4-2 win against Colorado Monday night.

Gaudreau needed 226 career games to reach and surpass the 200-point mark. He set his career-high in 2015-16 with 78 points and while this has been a more rocky season, he still has 17 goals and 58 points in 66 games.

Johnny Gaudreau is now riding a tidy five-game point streak.

He picked up both a goal and an assist during Monday's 4-2 win over the Avalanche. He has two goals and nine points during the streak. For the season, Gaudreau has 17 goals and 58 points in 66 games.
Mar 28 - 12:04 AM

Johnny Gaudreau posted a goal and two assists on Sunday night to help the Flames rage by L.A. 5-2.

Gaudreau, who was pointless for the two games prior, now has 16 goals and 52 points in 62 games this season.
Mar 20 - 12:59 AM

Johnny Gaudreau has four goals and 14 points in his last 10 games.

That's a big part of the reason the Flames are enjoying a 10-game winning streak. Gaudreau has been shaky at times this season and that's apparent by the fact that he has 49 points even after his current run, but he's certainly elevating his game at the right time. If he can keep this going during the playoffs then the Flames might turn some heads.

Johnny Gaudreau has been fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment.

Gaudreau was issued a warning after an incident on Dec. 23 and this fine was the result of a second instance on Sunday.
Mar 10 - 5:19 PM

Johnny Gaudreau scored and picked up three assists in Calgary's 5-0 beatdown of Montreal on Thursday.

This outburst was second time in less than a month that Gaudreau has tallied four points with a four-assist effort coming against Nashville on Feb. 21. The 23-year-old has 48 points in 57 games and eight points in the last five games. Michael Stone and Sean Monahan each had a goal and an assist, while Mark Giordano and Michael Ferland also scored for the Flames.

Johnny Gaudreau has nine points during the Flames seven game winning streak.

That's one better than Sean Monahan and Mikael Backlund as the Flames are not relying on just one player or line for their success. Gaudreau is up to 13 goals and 44 points this season so expect a lot better next year as he had 78 points in the 2015-16 season.
